Delta Plastics Proud to Sponsor Arkansas Governor's Cup

09-Apr-2019


Since 2004, Delta Plastics has been involved with the Arkansas Governor’s Cup Collegiate Business Plan Competition. As a proud sponsor of the Innovation Division since 2011, and the competition's Title Sponsor for the second year in a row, Delta Plastics finds it important to be part of challenging and encouraging students and helping them grow their ideas into tomorrow's businesses.

The competition is open to students attending any Arkansas two or four year college or university and is designed to allow them to act on their ideas and talents in order to bring their entrepreneurial ideas and talents to life.

The Governor’s Cup was created for the following purposes:
  • To promote and support college students who want to explore entrepreneurial endeavors and new venture creation while still in school
  • To encourage commercialization of promising ideas emerging from Arkansas colleges and universities
  • To build bridges between these students and their schools and Arkansas’s entrepreneurial community
  • To become one of the premier business plan competitions in the United States
“The Governor’s Cup is a good runway of exposure for these students," said Dhu Thompson, Delta Plastics' owner and chairman. Encouraging students to follow their passions, Thompson advises that they, “get out there and do it! If you’re passionate about it, you will succeed. If you’re passionate about it, you will be happy. And the goal is to be happy. The only way you can do that is to be true to yourself.”

Winners are to be announced at the Governor’s Cup Awards Luncheon on April 11, 2019, at the Wally Allen Ballroom, Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock, Ark. A total of $154,00 in cash prizes will be awarded. For more information, visit the website.
